DEAL OF THE WEEK

WOOLIES ONLINE BOSS QUITS The trading director of Shop Direct, parent company of Woolworths Online, has left the firm – sparking speculation that the business is in trouble. David Inglis left in the final week of July, according to Associated Newspapers. Shop Direct said in a statement that trading at Woolworths was ‘in line with expectations’. It said in the five weeks since the launch there had been millions of hits on the website, adding: “We continually review our structure to ensure we have the best fit to meet the changing demands we face. David Inglis’s recent departure is part of the wider restructuring of the management team.” TESCO WANTS VAT INCREASE DELAY Supermarket giant Tesco has called on the Government to delay a rise in VAT scheduled for January 1st, according to the Daily Telegraph.

MCV offers a weekly digest of the latest news on the High Street... Set to increase from 15 per cent to 17.5 per cent, VAT was cut in November in a move to combat the recession. Tesco praised this reduction and has urged a delay in returning to the old rate. BIONIC COMMANDO DISAPPOINTS After good results for the first fiscal quarter of 2010, Capcom has admitted that Bionic Commando has not met the company’s sales expectations. Bionic Commando shipped just 550,000 units worldwide in the quarter ending June 30th. Of the numbers, Capcom said the title “underperformed its expected sales”. THE SIMS 3 SELLS 3.7 MILLION EA has confirmed The Sims 3 has now sold 3.7m copies worldwide, becoming the company’s top selling title in both North America and Europe for the three months ending June 30th. The game shot straight to the top of the UK Charts upon its release, selling 1.4m copies woldwide in its first week.

FRONTLINE Nindie.com speaks with Andrew Harris of Peterborough indie Seventh Heaven… What makes your store unique? Our trade-in prices are probably some of the best around. I couldn’t stand behind the counter and offer three or four quid for GTA IV or a tenner for a recent title part exchange like some of the multiples for fear of getting lumped. And we’ve been here 18 years now – not many games shops can say that any more.

9. ASHES CRICKET 2009

What challenges do you face? Our distributor’s games are too expensive for us to compete with supermarkets so we put in a much lower order, as we know we won’t sell many. We pay nearly £40 for a game that supermarkets put out at £37 or less.

PS3 ..........................................................CODEMASTERS

However, if the trade price was lower then we would order a lot more (probably three or four times as much). Asda is only just round the corner from us and after two weeks a lot of the new releases are rolled back to £25, which makes it even worse. How much of a threat does digital distribution pose to your store? At present, I am not too worried as it does seem a long way off as a standard. But the release of the PSPgo will be the minor

start of it. We will basically sell the machine and then wave the customers farewell as they won’t need to come back to us for games, will they? Although from customer feedback – and my own preference – boxed product is still in demand. Downloads have no re-sale value so if you decide to sell, which you will eventually, it will be worth nothing. A lot of people, especially in this climate, can’t afford to not trade in a game to get a new one so they won’t be too happy if it all goes digital.
